Eat What You Love, Love What You Eat
By Michele May
People who struggle with the eat-repent-repeat cycle often react emotionally or mindlessly to unrecognized or unexamined triggers, thoughts, and feelings. In other words, they re-act—repeating past actions again and again—feeling powerless to change. Mindful eating brings nonjudgmental awareness to these patterns, creating space between triggers and actions, and empowering you to break old ineffective, habitual chain reactions. Eat What You Love, Love What You Eat uses the Mindful Eating Cycle to bring intention and attention to the entire eating process so you’ll be in charge of your decisions—without restriction, deprivation, or guilt.

The Exercise Balance : What’s Too Much, What’s Too Little, and What’s Just Right for You!
By Pauline Powers and Ron Thompson
“Exercise” is a behavior that is viewed positively by most people as a means to improve physical and psychological health. In fact, some people think that one cannot get too much of this “good thing” called exercise.  “Balance” is another concept that virtually always carries a positive connotation. It is interesting to note that despite consensus on the “goodness” of exercise and balance, many individuals have difficulty finding a balance with their exercise. That is, some seem to have a need to do too much while others cannot seem to get motivated to do enough. The Exercise Balance provides readers not only with information regarding identification of the subtle nuances of their exercise imbalance but also with practical strategies for overcoming them.

Intuitive Eating : A Revolutionary Program That Works
By Evelyn Tribole & Elyse Resch
Intuitive Eating is an evidence-based model created originally by Registered Dietitian Nutritionists, Evelyn Tribole and Elyse Resch in 1995.  Research shows that Intuitive Eaters have higher self-esteem, better well-being and optimism, greater psychological hardiness, more pleasure from eating, better coping skills, and the list goes on and on.   The third and newest edition of their groundbreaking book includes a complete update, with two new additional chapters. Health professionals will appreciate the new chapter on the exciting studies on Intuitive Eating.  And families will enjoy the information on how to raise an Intuitive Eater.
Intuitive Eating focuses on finding satisfaction in eating, which happens if you eat when moderately hungry, rather than ravenous or not yet hungry.  Also, eating the foods you love, with attunement (and without judgment), in an enticing environment, will lead to optimal satisfaction. You will learn that using food to cope, only serves to push feelings further down, rather than resolving them. Ultimately, Intuitive Eating will help you make peace with food, and  increase the joy in your relationship with food, and your mind and body!

Nice Girls Finish Fat: Put Yourself First and Change Your Eating Forever
By Karen R. Koenig
Nice girls often develop eating problems because they’re so busy taking care of and pleasing others and doing everything perfectly, that they forget about being nice to themselves. Instead of taking care of themselves physically and emotionally, they turn to food for comfort and to cope with stress. Learning how to set boundaries, stand up for themselves, give up perfectionism, and end approval-seeking, reduces stress and improves their relationship with food. It’s time too stop coloring with only the “nice” crayon, and start using all the other crayons in the box.
